== Hitching out ==
[[File:CraigIsraelKfarAdomim.jpg|thumb|220px|right|[[User:Halt, Stop! Reudnitz kommt.|Craig]] at Maale Adumim Junction en route to Dead Sea (5 mins).]]
=== East to the [[Dead Sea]], [[Amman]] ([[Jordan]]) ===
==== From West Jerusalem ====
Take bus 25, 4 or 4A to Har Ha'tsofim (French Hill ). You can hitchhike from the bus stop across the street from the entrance to the Mt. Scopus Campus of Hebrew University. The place is usually crowded with hitchhikers, and drivers stop often. Most likely they will go only part of the way, in which case you should ask to get off in the entry junction to their settlement, and continue hitchhiking from the bus station.
:[[User:Halt,_Stop!_Reudnitz_kommt.|Craig]] found it easy to get a lift even from inside Jerusalem. The bus stop mentioned above works perfect. Since recently you can get there taking the Tram ''or'' you hitchhike from in front the Damascus gate (sounds strange, but worked numerous times: 10 mins, 5 mins).
=== To [[Ramallah]], [[Samaria]] ([[West Bank]]) ===
Take a city bus (25, 4, or 4a) to the [[Har Ha'tzofim Junction ]] and stand there. Rides from here are available to the Ramallah area ([[Ramallah]], [[Ofra]], etc.) As well as further in, towards [[Nablus]], via "Tapuach Junction" ([[Ariel]], [[Salfit]], [[Buddya]] etc.)
However, due to the lack of rides to this area, it is probably best to take a service taxi (very cheap) to this area from Damascus gate in Jerusalem.
